Finally, I harvested the first fruits of my avocado trees. It took years before these 2 avocado trees gave me fruits. But the taste of these avocados is worth the wait. It is divine! I could not stop eating. I read somewhere that avocado (alligator pear, butter fruit) is the only fruit that provides substantial amount of healthy kind of fat called monounsaturated fat, and it contains around 20 vitamins and minerals. It has lots of health benefits such as reducing the risk of diabetes, heart disease and even obesity, etc. I really feel blessed that I can now harvest this very healthy fruit in my own yard.

Wow, that's very impressive! I'm not a fan of avocados, though I do try to eat them from time to time.

You can enjoy avocados more if you add condensed milk and freeze it before eating.

oh wow, where do you live? Are you in the province? We used to have some fruit trees in our backyard too. Too bad we only rented the place and didn't own it. It's so much better to have your own house with it's own land where you can have fruit trees and harvest and eat the fruits for free.

OMG! It's my most favorite fruit. I crave now an avocado share while reading this post and watching the newly reaped guacamoles.

Oh wow, i envy you my friend for having a tree of avocados . And look at that picture of your picked avocado . Is it what they call here "pulutan" , wherein even if it is a bit yellowish /greenish it's already ripe and so creamy to the taste ? That kind is my fave . I like it with just brown sugar sprinkled on top of the sliced avocado .

Exactly my friend, it is the best variety. My eldest sister eats avocado just as you do, only with brown sugar.
